So, you want to try your hand at beauty, eh? Do you know anything about this activity? Do you know about all the different kinds of products that you can use? Do you know what entails a successful look? If these questions raise more questions than you can answer, try looking at the tips below.
Fill an empty pot or a tiny jar with the moisturizer of your choice. Keep one in your glove box, purse or desk drawer. Use a dab of moisturizer when your skin is dry.
Lightly spray your face with a hydrating mist to make your makeup last longer. The mist will help set your makeup, keep it looking fresh and give you that just done makeup look for hours. This is great for keeping your makeup in place for those long days at work or nights out with friends.
Allow your hair to air dry as frequently as you can in order to protect it from heat damage. You hair can be seriously damaged by too much heat from your hair dryer, a curling iron or straightening iron. If using a hair dryer is a must, then at least use the mildest setting possible. This protects you hair and keeps it silky and soft.
Always wash your face using a mild cleanser once or twice per day, no matter what your skin type is. You should use a makeup remover before starting your cleansing, though. If you do not do this you may clog your pores and get pimples.
Pick a foundation that is dermatologist approved and matches your natural skin tone well. Some foundations can clog your pores quite easily if you have sensitive skin, so find one that is oil-free as well. This will help keep your pores clear and help make your face look great and oil-free all day.
If you continually get acne only on one side of your face, it could be caused by your cell phone. Make sure you clean your cell phone regularly to remove dirt and oil. You may also want to try switching sides each time you talk on the phone to give the acne-prone side of your face a break.
Choose products appropriate for your skin type. When you are selecting your facial products, whether they are lotions, toners or cleansers, make sure they are appropriate for your type of skin. Using products aimed at your particular problem areas can improve skin condition dramatically. Follow this up with a weekly face mask that purifies.
You can make a DIY mouthwash by mixing peppermint oil with purified water. You will use one drop of oil per ounce of water. Measure your drops of peppermint oil into a high capacity ceramic container and boil your water. Add boiling water for the next step. Use a clean cloth to cover the container and let it cool. Pour this into a container, such as a bottle, with an air-tight lid. Use it as mouthwash!
Consider using a purple eye shadow, rather than black or brown. Black and brown can be boring. Purple can really make your eyes pop. Purple eyeshadow is not as bold as you might think. From a distance, it will look like a black or a brown. Even so, it will give your eyes a little extra something.
